There are special moments in my life where I wish I could stop the hands of time. My kids are all home tonight, and my husband and I are hanging out doing a whole lot of nothing. Some would call me boring. I consider myself a great appreciator of time.
I can often torment myself because I yearn to go back to times in my life that I can't go back to. Times like when my mother was alive, when my babies were small enough to nuzzle into the crook of my neck, my wedding day.
Whenever I'm overwhelmed by the desire to stop my life right where it is, I ask the Lord to bless my grateful heart with a memory. I ask Him for a snapshot of this joyful moment in my life. Making a deposit into my mind's library allows me to go back every once in awhile, and replay these special moments in my life.
How about you? Is there a special part of your life where you wish you could freeze time? Have you made any memory deposits lately?
To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
